A good outdoor growler needs to do more than simply hold beer. There’s truly a lot that goes into a high-quality beer growler, especially one that’s built tough enough for camping, hiking, or any other outdoor activity. We want something that keeps beer (or whatever beverage you’re putting in) at its peak freshness. As we’re sitting around the fire after setting up camp, the last thing we want to find is warm beer. Plus, it needs to be durable, leak-proof, and easy to fill and clean.

Earlier this month, beer enthusiast and editor Kristen Kuchar tried out the Stanley Classic Vacuum Growler and loved it, but we want to know what you think. Who makes the best outdoor growler? Vote now to instantly see results.
